At first glance you might think this mother has just put her baby to sleep…

….in fact she is bidding a final farewell to her flower


In Bam, there are many such mothers….


And fathers too…


33,000 bodies have been buried

It is estimated that 15,000 more may still be under the rubble


  • The earthquake struck the city at Fajr time.

  • Some of the deceased were found in Sajda or with Qur’an, Tasbeeh in their hands.


It lasted for about 12 seconds; three times longer than most earthquakes

and brought about wide scale destruction to one of the oldest cities


entire neighbourhoods were flattened


…………..many neighbourhoods

Almost 80% of the buildings in Bam were destroyed


It generated $400,000 a month in tourism, before the earthquake

CITADEL -The world renowned 2000 year old historical trading town.


Even new Buildings were not spared


More than 50 mosques & 30 Centres damaged


70 year old Hawza (Jamiatuz Zahra)for Ladies totally destroyed


Robbed of their houses the people now seek shelter in tents


Some semi-permanent housing is arriving


In the immediate aftermath a lot of relief goods were delivered; clothes, shoes, medicine


Imam Juma’a (Ayatullah Khameini’s representative in Bam)Governor of Bam & Mayor of Bam, Commander in Chief –Kirman Prov.


Syed Husayni Bushehri –Head of all Hawzas in Iran

Syed A’lamul Huda –Chairman Bam Cultural Rehabilitation

Action Taken

  • Immediate: Condolence letters & relief aid of over US$80,000.

  • Assessment Team: Fact finding visit to analyse needs. Output is this presentation and a more detailed report available on the World Federation website.

  • Short-term: Semi-permanent structures to be used as multi purpose Centres. Most of the centres were destroyed & with the advent of Muharram, coupled with the fact that this unique need could not be addressed by the International relief agencies.

  • Mid-term projects: Permanent Imambaras & Hawza.


Recommendation: Short term Needs

  • 14 semi-permanent multi purpose centres to be used for Azadari, Masjid, Hawza, etc. Costing US$125,000.

  • All weather

  • Will be in use for atleast 2 years whilst re-construction of all Centres is completed

  • 50% of the cost i.e. all ‘white goods’ will be transferred to new Centres & the Structures re-used in subsequent Muharams.


14 Centers Delivered in time

Land being cleared

Steel frame erected

Completed Structure


Ashura in Bam; Muharram 1425


Recommendation: Mid term

Final phase to provide permanent structures to replace the damaged/destroyed religious Centres as follows

  • MosqueUS$140,000

  • Imambara/Religious CentreUSS200,000

  • HawzaUS$120,000

    This is a unique need as only Communities like ours can understand and address the plight of our brothers in faith.
